There will be no turkey hangover this year at Max’s because we’re launching head first into the holiday shopping season! The warm weather this fall has played mind games with us I think but, as the first snowflakes are starting to fall this week, there’s no doubt that the holiday season is upon us. We’re ready for it though, as our cases are filled with beautiful artisan made jewelry from over 40 designers and our shelves are stocked with specialty chocolates from around the world. You know us — we love a good party — and we love that American Express does so much to support small businesses with their promotion of Small Business Saturday. That said, this Saturday is not only a going to be fun, it’s going to be an overall fun (and VERY sparkly) weekend, as we’re having a trunk show featuring the work of Italian jewelry designer Carolina Bucci on Friday, November 27 thru Sunday November 29. Carolina is best known for her woven silk thread and gold chain jewelry, and having just been sent the list of everything that she’s sending for the weekend, things are REALLY going to sparkle. And, having the Shop Girls from MyTalk 107.1 here right after Thanksgiving for a live broadcast to help kick off the holiday shopping season is quickly becoming a tradition – Small Business Saturday wouldn’t be the same at Max’s if Allison and Harmony weren’t with us dishing about jewelry, chocolate and all things shopping. So, I hope that I’ve tempted you – beautiful jewelry, delicious chocolates, a Carolina Bucci trunk show and the ShopGirls.
